Roll the Woodpile Down

Way down south where the cocks do crow
'Way down in Florida
The gals all dance to the old banjo
And we'll roll the woodpile down!
Chorus:
Rollin'! Rollin'! Rollin' the whole world 'round
That brown girl o' mine's down the Georgia Line
And we'll roll the woodpile down!

2. When I was a young man in me prime
'Way down in Florida
I'd take them yaller gals two at a time.
And we'll roll the woodpile down!
Chorus:

3. We'll roll him high and we'll roll him low
'Way down in Florida
We'll heave him up and away we'll go.
And we'll roll the woodpile down!
Chorus:

4. Oh rouse and bust 'er is the cry
'Way down in Florida
A black man's wage is never high.
And we'll roll the woodpile down!
Chorus:

5. O Curly goes on the old ran-tan
'Way down in Florida
O Curly's just a down-east man.
And we'll roll the woodpile down!
Chorus:

6. O one more heave and that will do
'Way down in Florida
We're the bullies for to kick 'er through.
And we'll roll the woodpile down!
Chorus:
